"Mature and confident, the poems in The Bridge show a talented and experienced writer at his most persuasive. Christopher Levenson has always been an open and accesible poet, but never before has he allowed us to see so much of the people and places, the emotional geography of his life, as he takes stock and searches for lasting value. "What will survive," he asks, and that is the urgent question of the collection. I would suggest that the best of these warm, human poems certainly will survive, and for that we should be grateful. The Bridge is Levenson's strongest book so far."
